Ten Tribal Hairstyles by yaskarahyelhope(f): 5:52pm On Jan 03, 2015
You’ve got an A-line cut, or a bob, or pink
tips, but could you pull off one of these
dos? We love these 10 traditional African
hairstyles from tribal women. We kind of
wish we could rock them in America. Here
are 10 tribal hairstyles we wish we could
pull off.

1. Clay-covered dreads
In several tribes of the Namib Desert,
women wrap their dreads in red clay. We
think it has a futuristic “Matrix” look, and
that red hue is stunning.

2.. Dreads
This is an obvious one: wouldn’t it be
incredible to never have to brush your hair
again? And dreads look so cool when
they’re pulled up and twisted into a bun.

3. Trinket braids
In the Ethiopian Daasanach tribe, women
often braid various trinkets from wooden
beads to bottle caps onto their headwraps.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to choose your
favorite items and put them on a
headwrap? This one gives the illusion of a
bob cut.

4. Buzz cut
In several African tribes, women have
buzzed or shaved heads. Let’s face it: you
have to have stunning features to pull this
look off, and these women do! They never
have to touch up on their layers again.

5. Braided bob
If a bob cut plus bangs isn’t the cutest
combination in the world, when you do the
whole thing in braids, it looks somehow
edgy and youthful at the same time, and we
love it. This woman is from the Kolcho tribe
in Ethiopia.

6. Full-head wraps
If you wear a head wrap one day, everybody
comments on it and commends you for
your bohemian look. Of course, if you wore
one every day people might question what
you were hiding under there. But head
wraps can be so gorgeous and they do give
you a get-out-of-jail-free pass on a bad
hair day!

7. Frontal headbands
In the Afar tribe of the East African
countries of Djibouti, Somalia, Ethiopia and
Eritrea, women wear elaborate woven
headbands that usually drape down the
center of their faces. This gives them such
a regal, mysterious look.

8. Partial mohawk
Admit it: you’ve fantasized about cutting a
mohawk just to let people know you’re a
bad*ss. African women in many tribes get
to wear one without being called a tomboy
— it’s just the norm!

9. Beaded braids
With beaded braids, you could coordinate
your hair with your outfit every day. And
the swish-swish sound when you turn your
head is kind of seductive.

10. Dread headband
These young girls from the Ethiopian Kara
tribe laid dreads across the top of their
heads, halfway back, giving the illusion of a
permanent headband, which makes their
facial features really pop.
